This JDM-spec option is only available in Japan (for now)
Honda Access Japan, the company's in-house accessory division revealed a series of add-ons to adorn the 2023 FL5 Civic Type-R.
As the new model builds up around the hype, Honda has gifted the tuner market with a host of new accessories for the new Type-R, reminiscent of the model’s signature aggressive aesthetic.
The JDM-spec option includes an upgraded carbon fiber rear spoiler, improving its sporty appearance while shaving 2.2 pounds off the factory unit. The company also added a new set of red mirror caps, matching the colors of the Type-R badge. Additional exterior bling includes Type R-branded door projectors and a Euro-spec horn option.
Honda Access also included some interior upgrades which complemented the overall motif of the car. This included a leather-wrapped shift knob finished in its signature Type-R red, continuing with a set of red carpets matching the factory bucket seats. A carbon-fiber shifter surround is also available, while doorsills and uppers were treated with the same trim.
While these accessories are only exclusive to the Japanese market for now, it would be a big miss for Honda if they don’t offer it globally. Considering the lust for the Civic Type-R, Honda fans would surely be rushing to get their hands on it.
